About the authors

Henk ten Have studied medicine and philosophy at Leiden University, the Netherlands. He received his medical degree in 1976 from Leiden University and his philosophy degree in 1983. He worked as a researcher in the Pathology Laboratory, University of Leiden (1976-1977), as a practising physician in the Municipal Health Services, City of Rotterdam (1978-1979) and as a Professor of Philosophy in the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Limburg, Maastricht (1982-1991). From 1991 he was a Professor of Medical Ethics and the Director of the Department of Ethics, Philosophy and History of Medicine in the University Medical Centre Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In September 2003 he joined UNESCO as Director of the Division of Ethics of Science and Technology. Since July 2010 he is Director of the Center for Healthcare Ethics at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, USA. QUOTE FROM REVIEWER: “There is probably no bioethicist in the world that has the same global insight in bioethics as Henk ten Have, in terms of neglected/important topics, centers of expertise around the world, qualified contributors in other countries and overall management of a project such as this one” (Jos Welie, review report on the proposal for the Encyclopedia of Global Bioethics).  

Reviews

“The ten Have’s Encyclopaedia represents an enormous advancement with respect to the aggressive, autarchic mainstream bioethics. … it is certainly an ‘Encyclopaedia of a more global bioethics’ than any other bioethical or biomedical-ethical encyclopaedia so far.” (Amir Muzur, Jahr - European Journal of Bioethics, Vol. 7 (14), 2016)
